I am a bit of a a freak. I am 5'6" tall with 32 inch cycling inseam. This means that I have long legs (and arms) for my height.

So, I have been considering getting a custom bike built, but I am not made of $$$.

Are there any quality builders that will build a custom frame for less than a grand?

But what makes you think that being 5' 6" with a 32" makes you a freak?
Shhh. A 52cm frame fits me pretty well without making crazy weird adjustments. I am trying to justify the purchase of yet another bike to my wife. And appaerently, you and I both have long legs considering our height.

Thanks for the links.

it might help you in your decision process
Wow! That is some really great info on your BLOG. I have only made it through a portion of your story and already I am thinking about things that I had not previously considered. That should be required reading for anyone considering a custom build.
